I believe it is
B006 = Kindle 3G+WiFi from the US store (AT&T)
B00A = Kindle 3G+WiFi from the UK store (Vodafone)
The difference may actually be that it is the different providers and not the store itself. Either way that is the reason for the differing serial number prefixes.
I've no idea why needs different versions though. Same with the WiFi version. I would have expected it to have 1 unified firmware which covers all 3 variants and just checks to see what it has been installed on.
